It is not uncommon for the the most amicable business partners to have a serious disagreement from time to time. Unfortunately, legal action may sometimes be necessary to protect your interest and investments. Common partnership disputes among partners include: (a) failure to honor fiduciary duties, (b) failure to satisfy contractual obligations as specified in the partnership or operating agreement, (c) secret business dealings that are contrary to the company’s best interests, (d) and many other disruptive scenarios.
Shareholder disputes often arise for a number of typical reasons including: (a) a desire by shareholder(s) to terminate the shareholder relationship, (b) disagreement with the actions of the majority shareholders, (c) claims by a minority shareholders that actions of the controlling shareholders are illegal, oppressive or fraudulent. No matter the underlying reason causing the dispute, we are expert negotiators and mediators and can likely assist you in coming to a resolution that will be satisfactory to both sides.
